detail wrong. the detail having to do with race. >>> and later, is is all this coverage of the nsa an outgrowth of white privilege? our guests will debate whether or not liberals are favoring certain rights for certain people over others. >>> first i want to share the three awesomest things on internet today. beginning with video that is awesome in the sense that it is just absolutely crazy. bayou corn, louisiana, is the site of what "mother jones" calls the biggest ongoing industrial disasters in the united states you haven't heard of. state is suing a mining company called texas brine for allegedly causing a massive underground sinkhole surely, slowly swallowing the town. it is growing. the entire town of 340 people have been forced to evacuate. unfortunately, the trees surrounding the sinkhole don't have that option. check that out. the assumption parish emergency response team released this video wednesday. an entire grove of trees getting sucked down, 750 feet deep. notice they don't fall over. they get sucked down into the massive hole below. amazing and terrifying. the secon
telling nbc they don't know the scope of the information that snowden took. the paper revealing the nsa can tap more than 75%, three-fourths of internet traffic in the country. jim miklaszewski is joining me now to explain what happened in court and how this will play out. as we stated the appeal process is something that is automatic. >> absolutely. >> reporter: the military judge did hand down a 35-year prison term for fpc bradley manning for leaking 700,000 documents. a pretty massive leak of intelligence. the largest in u.s. history. the prosecution had asked for 60 years. the defense had asked for 25 years. and the maximum sentence would have been 90. some are already looking at this as somewhat of a win for bradley manning and his defense team. now, the judge had already ordered, prior to the sentence, that he would be given credit for the 3 1/2 years he has already spent in custody, so that already reduces the sentence. and so at the -- a little over ten years, he would be eligible for parole. that is a big wild card because who knows what the sense of bradley manning's offenses
're basically getting a newhe roommate, the nsa, and you cann kiss the 4th amendment good-bye. we know companies like microsoft are willing to cooperate with nsa. a if you report says local law l enforcement agencies are taking information surveillance fromsa the nsa and arresting americans because of that surveillance. what you're doing is inviting the government into your home. that, to me, is very dangerous. >> wayne, you have to be careful what you wear when you're watching tv. they might flip the switch and v watch you right back? >> that's true. and i agree.hey it's a terrible thing to have the government watching you for anything. federal geet the government out of awful our lives. however, nobody is forcing you once again to buy that particular television that has a that camera in it.at c it's like buying a gun. you know a gun can kill somebody, might even kill you if you own the gun. so you got to be careful.n. so if you buy that television that has that camera, you're taking that risk. you don't have to -- wayne -- nobody is forcing you, but you buy the tv with the expectation thatpect
with tattoos, people without tattoos. >> we did notice that -- anyway, railing against nsa surveillance, he spoke out against lindsey graham with some help from the crowd. >> one of the senators, and we won't name any names, who's republican, from a state just south of north carolina -- he said that he didn't care if we censored all of the mail. that's scary. that's pretty scary. >> well, it's not just graham who's watching his back from this part of the party. today on capitol hill, conservative groups including the tea party patriots, the club for growth, heritage action and citizens united are holding an event demanding for a vote to defund obama care. called a litmus test for all republicans. >> those of us who are republican, those of us who claim to be against obama care, who happen to vote to fund it, will have a lot to pay, will have a lot to answer for, with our constituents. >> another group that will be at today's capitol hill event, for america. they're up with a video that singles out republican leader mitch mcconnell, calling him a chicken for not joining those republican forc
describing four steps he would take to make the nsa both more transparent and more accountability including working with congress to tighten the patriot act, making sure someone represents civil liberties concerns before the powerful and secretive surveillance courts. making public the legal rationale for the government's collection activities and other steps to be more transparent about the government's surveillance program. and forming a group of outside experts to review the government's intelligence and communication technologies. the president went on to describe the questions over the balance between national security and individual liberty as a necessary debate, one we need to be having. and he said those on both sides of it are patriots. >> the men and women of our intelligence community work every single day to keep us safe because they love this country and believe in our values. they're patriots, and i believe that those who have lawfully raised their voices on behalf of privacy and civil liberties are also patriots who love our country. this is how we're going to resolve differe
new guidelines to make government surveillance more transparent. former cia and nsa director michael hayden noted today that the president never actually said anything had been done wrong. >> to me, the most telling thing she said was perhaps something he didn't quite say. he didn't suggest he was going to operationally change this program. i mean, there's no suggestion that what he was doing, and what president bush was doing before him with regard to these programs was anything other than lawful, effective and appropriate. >> on "meet the press," republican iowa congressman steve king stood by his comments about immigrants he made last month, saying that his remarks about drug smugglers outnumbering valedictorians were accurate and new legislation granting the shorter path to citizenship would not differentiate between the two groups. >> my heart goes out to the valedictorians brought here by their parents. but we cannot put our sympathies for people in that condition greater than our love for the rule of law, or the sovereignty of the united states of america. >> the conservative
. and another surprise headline on what the nsa is up to. an internal review shows the intel outfit broke its own rule thousands times. good morning from washington. it's friday, august 16th, 2013. and this is "the daily rundown." we're watching developing news out of egypt. the country bracing for more bloodshed today. tens of thousands of muslim brotherhood members and their supports are responding to calls for a day of rage. pouring into the streets to protest this week's brutal government crackdown. we're watching crowds demonstrators crossing a bridge through cairo. most likely trying to make its way to the square where morsi supporters are gathering. in direct defiance to the state of emergency. the army has been giving the green light to use live ammunition against the protesters. troops have been deployed to guard police and state buildings. they've set up road blocks at key junctions. there are some reports now of deadly clashes around egypt as well. the official death toll stands at 638. with nearly 4,000 people wounded. the government crackdown has sparked criticism from all corner

edward snowden temporary asylum. the self-professed nsa leaker got the proper documents to leave. he is in an undisclosed location this morning. and while it might help the former contractor this morning, jim aceda is joining us. what are the implications for what has happened with the whole snowden scenario? >> reporter: good morning, betty. the snowden situation has strained difficult relations between the united states and russia. the u.s. does see the snowden asylum as a slap in the face really. the question now is how far is the obama administration willing to go to embarrass putin by boycotting the g 20. obama and putin plan to have one-on-one talks in moscow before the g-20. the white house is hinting to cancel that. he spent his first night in freedom as an official refugee. his lawyer says that he's staying in the home of an american expat family, that he's learning russian and wants to get a job to support himself. not in information technology. he's more interested in becoming a human rights activist. back to you. >> very interesting. thank you very much. we'll watch that

of things i really question, you know, the legality of the drone strikes and the nsa revelations are -- you know, it's like -- you know, jimmy carter came out and said we don't live in a democracy. and that's a little -- that's a little intense when an ex-president says that. so, you know, he's got some explaining to do. particularly for a constitutional law professor. >> must have. blue shirt day on bet. anyway, on friday, obama called a press conference to address his relationship with damon directly. >> we have conversations. they're candid, they're blunt. often times they're constructive. i know the press likes to focus on body language, and he's got that kind of slouch, looking like the bored kid in the back of the classroom, but the truth is that when we're in conversations together, often times it's very productive. >> that's exactly what you say when you dump somebody. oh, you know, it's actually not so bad. because you're not the one profess dumped, president obama. you know what's not very productive, interrupting a guy's workout. >> president obama is the guy doing push-ups and t
, and jimy williams. we've had a lot of upset over the fact of the nsa collecting data, you know, what kind they're collecting, but it turns out there's another organization collecting information, and it's the nra. >> yes, you know, there's a couple different interesting things about this story. one the fact there's a group to the right of the nra that is attacking the nra. >> and the second thing is i think this points at something that is troubling to people that really care about civil liberties and privacy. people usually don't think about the collection of data for commercial or marketing purposes. this is why the nra was correcting this data. so they could fund raise off these people. it is just as bad or just as much an invasion of privacy. you do different things with it, but you know, i'm sort of glad they're calling attention to this. >> jimmy, how did the nra handle just the naked hypocrisy or apparent hypocrisy of railing about collecting information, when they are doing it? i realize you assume that the national rifle association has morals or any guilt -- i'm telling you that
the opportunity to promote their own position on the nsa and the impact of budget cuts. >> al qaeda's on the rise in this part of the world and the nsa program is proven its worth yet again. we need to re-evaluate where we're at. sequestration has to be fixed. if this happens a year from now, our intelligence communities will be less capable. >> for more on the threat and ways being done to combat it, for that, i'm joined by nbc's justice correspondent pete williams. all right, pete, do we have new information from what we knew thursday and friday about this terror threat, from what we've learned over the weekend? >> well, yes, i think from members of congress, have been saying -- remember, they've been getting briefings on this. i must say, chuck, i think there's another factor at play here in addition to all the ones you mentioned about why the government is being so forthcoming about this. you may recall there was a lot of criticism after the bombing of twa flight 800 that the government was telling its people not to fly but not saying anything to the general traveling public. now the rule is
's decision to grant nsa leaker edward snowden asylum. so are we headed toward a modern-day cold war between these two? >> i was disappointed because, you know, even though we don't have an extradition treaty with them, traditionally we have tried to respect if there's a lawbreaker or an alleged lawbreaker in their country. there have been times where they slipped back into cold war thinking and a cold war mentality. what i consistently say to them and what i say to president putin is that's the past. you know e we've got to think about the future. >> mean tiemt, many are expecting more revelations from snowden related to u.s. surveillance programs. administration officials say those very programs helped uncover this latest terror threat, a potential al qaeda plot in the middle east. about a dozen and a half u.s. embassies and consulates are still closed, a precaution taken in response to that intelligence. critics of the government secrecy says the reports of this plot say snowden's leaks are adding transparency without undermining the successful spying operations. in his first public comme

by nsa surveillance. i think the report in "the washington post" showing that there were more than 2700 incidents in which the nsa broke and violated is going to get more press. democrats are already reacting negatively to it. we've seen patrick leahy on the senate judiciary saying that he's going to hold hearings. even nancy pelosi who has been supportive of the president here says she's quite troubled and regular critics like senator ron wyden have released a letter saying this is the only the tip of the iceberg. there's still a lot we don't know. >> harry, what are you hearing down there? is this something that has already got the far left up in arms or much to do about nothing? >> they voted to defund this program a month ago. i think you're going to have real issues when the congress gets back. there's been a lot of pushback. you can see the people that supported the president, kind of pulling back. this is going to be a big issue. if you you're looking for the obama scandal, as the republicans are, this is going to be a big issue. >> nsa? >> nsa. >> christine, what's your headline

, because more and more members of congress are concerned over the extent of nsa's spying on us, as we vealed by edward snowden, president obama convened a meeting of republicans to discuss how we can get the proper balance between national security and our right of privacy. and you can look for some legislation which will restrict nsa's spying. we'll tell you all about it right here on current tv. iq will go way up.

peterson of lehigh university. welcome to all of you. i want to go right to pete williams on the nsa. pete, you heard the president lay out four changes that he wanted to make, reforming section 215 with new safeguards, greater transparency and also the creation of some kind of new independent body. your reaction to the president on the surveillance issue. >> right. what the president said is that he's willing to look at the issue of having an adversary before the foreign intelligence surveillance corps, one of the criticisms of it is that the only people who ever appear before these judges in secret are the government. nobody's there to argue against or say the government doesn't need this and shouldn't have it. the president has said he's willing to look at an adversary to represent in essence civil liberties interests. he didn't say he was committed to it. he said he was willing to consider it. apparently this is something the government is seriously considering doing. making more public information about how these programs work putting up a website to explain them and bringing in outsi
. >>> the "washington post" headline says it all. nsa repeated low broke privacy rules. the report based on a may 2012 internal audit of the nsa and passed along by edward snowden. documents over 2700 specific privacy violations by the spy agency over a single 12-month period. the "post" reports most of the infractions involve unauthorized surveillance of americans or foreign intelligence targets in the united states. while the documents do not reveal how many americans were affected, they do appear to directly contradict what president obama said just last week. >> what you're not reading about is the government actually abusing these programs and listening in on people's phone calls or inappropriately reading people's e-mails. what you're hearing about is the prospect that these could be abused. now, part of the reason they're not abooufused is because these checks are in place. >> michael, these checks don't actually seem to be in place? >> yeah. >> a deep hmm. >> they sort of don't. this is a really problematic story for the administration. >> i think this one almost as much or more than anything

latest on the nsa leaker and his life ahead. >> hi, there, mara. edward snowden has, it would appear, settled into his new russian life as quietly as he spent most of his almost six weeks ined is that transit zone inside moscow's airport. so quiet, in fact, that some paparazzi and journalists who were apparently stalking him all that time are calling it anticlimatic. the only information we're actually getting about snowden is coming from his lawyer anatoly kucherena. he found a place to stay, an undisclosed location in moscow. he is keen to learn the russian language and culture and looking, according to kucherena, for a job as a human rights activist. he's also giving up, apparently, on the idea of seeking asylum in any latin american country. that means that he's probably taking the advice of his father, lonnie snowden who told me in an interview we did on thursday from washington, d.c., that if he were his son, he would stay here in russia and make a life of it because it's a strong country, he said, that could resist extreme u.s. pressure to actually to hand his son over to face
to that new "the washington post" report concerning the nsa. the report says the nsa broke privacy rules or overstep its legal authority thousands of time each year since 2008. >>> it's not a problem. it worked. if you have 99.9% compliance and so few reporting errors this came from an internal report which then becomes part of an overall ig report. i'm on the intelligence committee. i'm satisfied we're told. >> the problem and there is a real problem with the system. it's a black box, the fisa court is a secret tribunal issuing secret opinions making secret law and a lot of it completely unavailable to members even of the foreign intelligence committee. >> those documents published by the "the washington post" were leaked by edward snowden. >>> this weekend has been a wash out in parts of the south. heavy rains flooded several streets in north carolina and more rain is expected through the weekend. will it end? when is the question. we have more on that. >> we're still keeping an eye on the rain up and down the east coast. it's streaming in off the gulf of mexico and the southeast will
confusion before, we now know that president obama isn't a fan of nsa leaker, edward snowden. and he's especially not a fan of russia's decision last week to grant snowden asylum, shielding of from charges of espionage and theft. how much was snowden the final straw in this deteriorating relationship? >> i think he totally was the deteriorating straw. we've had a relationship that's within deteriorating for probably two years now, probably even before that, and i think it was the final sign of how bad the relationship has gotten, that it was so easy for russia to be like, okay, edward, come hang out for us a little while. >> is it really that it was so easy. and folks who watch this show know that i've gotten in trouble for some of my critiques of edward snowden, although not critiques of what he released. in other words, i think the releasing is one thing. i think the seeking asylum is something separate. but if the roles were reversed, we would we have returned an asylum seeker? >> we would never have. and there were instances when the lord of war, even a movie was made with nicola
